more feeds and things … and blogrolls

A little bit preoccupied today and doing busywork (yes, is a word), and somehow stumbled upon several rather cool blogs on geology, palaeontology, and archaeology and so did a bit of re-ordering of my NetNewsWire feeds and some shuffling of groups and things, adding, subtracting, sorting, the usual obsessive-compulsive behaviour that leads to nightmare kitchen cleaning bouts …

So…

I’ve updated my blogroll a bit. Mostly just stripping out the old blogs that are no longer posting, some I don’t really read so much as I used to, some I have removed from my feeds altogether (it’s a disconcerting thing when a blog I kinda liked turned out to be quite rabidly pro-life, that is to say in non-Orwell-speak, anti-abortion no matter what suffering is incurred … made me feel a tiny bit ill)… ummm…

(A surprising number of China and Asia blogs have either died or are slumbering, but in their place, some quite nice new ones, and the specialisation over the last couple of years is really noticeable, not so much all generic China anymore, plenty of geographically distinct and special issue ones too.)

Adding new ones!!!

So many new, amazingly well-written blogs on everything I can ever think of, and the cool thing is so many of them written by intelligent, articulate, educated and forthright women.

I’ve tried to keep the list not so overwhelming. I tend to find new blogs from other blogs and a long and unsorted blogroll just causes instant eye-glaze. Also I tend to find new blogs from links in posts more often anyway, so the list here is mostly blogs I really enjoy reading as often as they post.

And … a newly updated RSS subscription list for all of you who went and got your free NetNewsWire reader in the last couple of weeks.
